SOURCE: reservoir will not empty completely

I had the same problem I used straight vinegar. I just poured it into the coffee maker and let it run through the cycle after it was done then I poured plain water and ran it through it That seemed to help my problem. I hope this helps

SOURCE: FME4 won't brew; thinks there's no water

I believe that the description you made of the horizontal dashed lines indicates that the unit needs a descaling. If it also says "CALC" on the LCD display, then that probably means that calcium build-up needs to be removed. I am looking for my instruction manual because my machine is currently doing the same thing and in the past I've followed the instructions to descale it using a solution of water and vinegar. The weak acid from the vinegar removes the calcium deposits in the machine. Use distilled water and you won't have to descale it!

SOURCE: When I pour water into (empty) pot to fill. Bunn coffee maker

If you pour water into the machine, and water comes out, then the reservoir is full of water. There is no way the water can bypass the reservoir and go directly into the pot.

Check for any blocks in the route of water from the reservoir. And do not try to run the machine several times before the problem is rectified. It may cause further damage.

SOURCE: reservoir tank is full. green

There is a water level sensor at the bottom of the tank, probably is stuck. Examine it very carefully.

2015 sportsman 570. On trails first time today. No problems all day but loaded on truck and reservoir bottle is empty. See no coolant on ATV or on ground. What could it be?

check all hose clamps are tight, pressure test the cooling system as there may be a hole punched in the radiator or tank
an empty reservoir indicates a fault but the radiator cap is the place to check for coolant level as the reservoir will only get empty if the system needs water on cooling down

Need a descaler

instractions are from manual HD7810/00

Use the correct descaling agent
Only citric acid-based descalers are suitable for descaling the SENSEO
machine. This
type of descaler descales the machine without damaging it. For the correct amount,
see under 'Descaling procedure' below. Each descaling mixture can be used only once.
After use, the descaling mixture is no longer active.
We advise you to use the special SENSEO
Descaler (HD7012/HD7011/HD7006).
Read the instructions on the package of the descaling agent.
Never use a descaling agent based on mineral acids such as sulphuric acid,
hydrochloric acid, sulphamic acid and acetic acid (e.g. vinegar). These descaling
agents may damage your SENSEO

coffee machine.
Descaling procedure
1 Mix 50 grams of citric acid with 1 litre of water in a measuring jug. Stir until
the powder is completely dissolved.
2 Fill the water reservoir up to the MAX indication with the descaler mixture.
Then put the water reservoir back into the coffee machine. (Fig. 3)
Note: Not all SENSEO
machine types have a water reservoir with a capacity of
1 litre. If you have a SENSEO

machine with a smaller water reservoir, repeat steps
2 to 6 with the remainder of the mixture without filling the water reservoir up to
the MAX indication.
3 Press on/off button 3. (Fig. 10)
The machine is ready for use when the indicator light lights up continuously.
4 Place the 1-cup holder h with a used coffee pod in it in the coffee machine.
Close the lid and make sure it is properly locked.
Note: Always put a used coffee pod in the pod holder when you descale the
machine. This pod serves as a 'filter' to prevent the sieve or hole in the pod holder
from getting clogged with scale residue.
5 Put a bowl with a capacity of at least 1500ml under the spout to collect the
descaling mixture (Fig. 8).
6 Press the 2-cup button hhand let the machine operate. Repeat this until
the water reservoir is empty. (Fig. 25)
Never interrupt the descaling process!
7 Repeat steps 1 to 6. Replace the used pod with another used pod to filter out
the scale residue.
Note: To descale properly, you have to use 2 litres of descaling mixture.
Never descale the SENSEO
coffee machine with the lid open. Make sure the lid is
properly locked.
8 Rinse the water reservoir with tap water. Fill the water reservoir up to the
MAX indication with tap water and repeat steps 3 to 6.
Note: Do not refill the water reservoir with used hot water or the used descaling
9 Fill the water reservoir with fresh tap water up to the MAX indication again
and repeat steps 3 to 6 once more.
Note: Always rinse the machine by letting it empty two full water reservoirs.
10 Remove the used pad and clean the pod holder after descaling to prevent the
sieve or hole in the centre from getting clogged.

Krups XP6010 won't pump water after running dry

The pump should not refuse to pump just because it was momentarily run dry. We do not have that model here in NZ so I'm not familiar with it. Is there a way to apply some air pressure (lungs) to the top of the tank and operate it, or maybe you can find some plastic tubing (2 feet of garden hose maybe) that fits the tank socket, full the hose with water and pressurise the top of the hose while operating the pump. If that doesn't work you are doomed to have to open it up and look inside.

I have a Krups FME2 coffee machine and when I fill it up with water, the screen shows that the water reservoir is empty? What the heck?

If there is a water level float in the tank it may be no longer floating, if you can shove a piece of plastic under it to lift it up that should trigger it to think it now has water.

It says the water reservoir has not been filled even when there is water in it. I'm unable to make coffee and keep getting this error signal.

The thermal cutoff fuse is bad. Fuse is located on the side of the heating element. No continuity will indicate failed switch. replace as assembly with heating element.
